Incorrect 3-Point Lines At The Women’s NCAA Tournament The Moda Center in Portland hosted several NCAA women’s tournament games over last weekend.  One of the being ones was NC State and Texas, where NC State won 76-66.  However, shortly before the game started, officials noticed that the 3-point line on one end of the court was shorter than the other.  The coaches were given the option of either delaying the game by an hour or so to redo the lines or play the game as scheduled.  The coaches choose the latter.  According to ESPN, six games were played with those incorrect lines and the teams did worse from the shorter 3-point line.  Obviously, there was no advantage of one team over the other since they flip sides at halftime.  The NCAA is investigating the company that was responsible.  And they have fixed the problem.
